We can really never eat enough pancakes here at the 365 homestead.

I mean, I make them for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Not all in one day, of course, because that would just be overload, but at least every other week we have pancakes for dinner.

I can’t get enough of them.
For me, I think it all started back when I was a kid and we’d go to IHOP (International House of Pancakes).
Oh how I LOVED that place…
the silver dollar pancakes
and all the different syrups.
I could never pick just one and had to try them all.

Pancakes are just awesome and if I could, I’d probably do a 365 Days of Pancakes.
Could you imagine?
Oh the fun we could have!!
Hmmm…something to think about when this is over.   😉

Baked Apple Cinnamon Pancake

Yield: 9 X 13-inch baking dish

Serving Size: 6-8

Baked Apple Cinnamon Pancake


  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 apples + 2 tablespoons flour


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Prepare a 9 X 13-inch baking dish by spraying it with cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine buttermilk, eggs and melted butter.
  5. Peel, core and dice the apples. (I used MacIntosh)
  6. in a small bowl, toss the apples with the two tablespoons of flour. This will prevent the apple pieces from sinking to the bottom of the pancake.
  7. Pour the buttermilk mixture into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  8. Fold in the diced apple.
  9. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish.
  10. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until lightly golden around the edges.
  11. Serve with maple syrup.

I rate everything I bake on a scale of 1-4 with 4 being the best and this Baked Apple Cinnamon Pancake earned 3 1/2 rolling pins.
It was good when I tasted it before I took the pictures, but it was even better after I ate the piece in the picture because it had the maple syrup on it!
This is something I will definitely be making again!
I really, really, REALLY liked the fact that it was baked and I could do other things while this was in the oven instead of pouring and flipping like I usually do.
The family liked it, too.
This would be great to serve for a brunch or when you have company staying with you. It will save you time in the kitchen so that you can spend more time with your guests!
It’s a win-win!

      I used 2 apples. They are listed at the bottom of the ingredient list to be combined with the 2 tablespoons of flour.

    This reminded me of the first time I took pancake batter, added apples and cinnamon, and made apple cinnamon pancakes! That was over 40 years ago! I thought I was a genius. Thanks for a wonderful recipe that brings back such happy memories! My late husband thought I was a genius too, because he loved them!

      I do not typically substitute a non-dairy milk for our regular milk, so I am not sure, but I don’t think there’d be an issue.

  2. Melanie says

    Can this be made a day ahead and then thrown back in the oven/microwave to reheat? Also, can you substitute whole milk for the buttermilk? Thanks!

  3. Sandy McMahon says

    Is there a substitute anyone has tried for the buttermilk and the butter? I have a grandson allergic to milk/dairy he can have eggs though. I’d love to make him pancakes because he loved them before. I would love a special recipe that someone tried and worked using something other than the butter and buttermilk.

    • Lynne says

      Sandy, you can substitute soy, rice or cashew milk for the milk. There are also butter substitutes. I would recommend a Google search as I’m not sure what they are.
